Comment as you wish....... Any common sense thinker knows guns are protection for an overwhelming amount of Americans. NOT a tool of evil!

Most estimates range between 39% and 50% of US households having at
least one gun (that's about 43-55 million households). The estimates for
the number of privately owned guns range from 190 million to 300
million. Removed those that skew the stats for their own purposes the
best estimates are about 45% or 52 million of American households owning
260 million guns.

Some recent estimates:

  • A 2011 Gallup poll estimates that 47 percent of US households own a gun.
  • A 2007 Small Arms Survey estimates there are 88.7 guns per 100 Americans (#1 in the world for guns per capita)
  • A
    2010 estimate from the NRA states "Privately owned firearms in the
    U.S.: Approaching 300 million, including nearly 100 million handguns.
    The number of firearms rises over 4 million annually."

    I can attest to the Law in Kennesaw...I had to Brother-in-Laws, Both Cops, living there when this was Inacted....
    Then you Look at the Gun Free Zone in Chicago and DC and they have the Highest Crime Rate in the Nation....

    Yep, and out here in the commie country of Illinois we are the "only" state in the entire union that won't allow concealed carry. The only one.
  • ReconMa... bman~AV... 2013/01/09 22:55:07
    And look and the Crime by Gun rate...
    Even here in Los Angeles, The LIB Mayor, said Monday that Gun Crime was down...and Gun Registration was Up....
    Go Figure...

    Recon!!! Great to see you back my friend! Man, I've been missing you on here. I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year too sir. The site was a bit boring with you gone and all. I also hear what you're saying about the gun crimes too. It's a proven fact that when you institute stiff gun regulations then the gun crimes go up and when you relax them and allow honest responsible citizens to be armed then the gun crimes go down.

    Sounds interesting....lol~!!!

    Good stats my friend. It's a proven fact that in places where there is massive gun regulations and bans then there is also skyrocketing violent crimes in those areas. In contrast, where there are very few or very lenient restrictions then the crime rates are significantly lower.

    I hear that my friend. Yep, I've been all thru TX when I used to drive over the road. TX is one big honkin state! I used to run the I-10 corridor but I've also been as far south as Laredo. I've been up and down I-35 many times.

    Hahahahaha! Yep! I sure know that all right. If you're driving professionally then you can only driver so many hours before you are required by law to shut it down for a set time. It takes a good 2 days to drive completely thru TX in a big truck. Like I already did say, that's one big honkin state!
